Foxboro, MA (.com) - It appears LeGarrette Blount enjoys playing in the rain.

Blount rushed 24 times for a career-high 189 yards with two touchdowns and set up a pair of second-half scores with lengthy kickoff returns, leading the New England Patriots to a 34-20 win over the Buffalo Bills in the regular-season finale at a drenched Gillette Stadium.

Tom Brady had 122 yards and a touchdown on 14-of-24 passing in the steady rain and recorded his third career punt for New England (12-4). The AFC East champs secured the second seed and a first-round bye.

Julian Edelman had 65 yards on nine receptions and joined Wes Welker and Troy Brown as the only Patriots to have 100 catches in a season.

Thad Lewis, starting for injured Buffalo rookie EJ Manuel (knee), was 16-of-29 for 247 yards and one touchdown. C.J. Spiller amassed 105 yards on 19 carries.
